Susan Burns and Mike Krochmal were involved in a fatal car accident in Cape Coral, Florida. Police believe that the accident occurred at about 6 PM near Bridge Plaza and College Parkway on McGregor Boulevard. Harold Burns was driving a Kia Sorrento on McGregor Boulevard and attempted to turn left into the Bridge Plaza. He collided with a Ford F-350 as he was turning. The Ford pushed the Kia in the way of a Saturn L300, which collided with the Kia. Harold Burns and one of the passengers, Pam Krochmal, were taken to the hospital. Burns does not have critical injuries whereas Krochmal has severe ones. Unfortunately, Susan Burns and Mike Krochmal died from their injuries. We wonder if this was a case of distracted driving or if the drivers simply could not see each other.
